A fairly quiet week is likely ahead, with U.S. markets closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday, and holding shortened trading hours on Black Friday. Housing data and consumer sentiment figures will trickle in, and traders will also be eyeing the latest gross domestic product (GDP) estimate for more rate-hike clues. Meanwhile, things are winding down for this quarterly earnings season, but there are a few notables in line to report. What's more, these 30 stocks could carve out some decent gains, if history is any indicator.
